Royal Family LIVE: Prince William to make major apology in bid to save Queen's legacy

Date:


Prince William is set to acknowledge the issue of slavery during his visit to the Caribbean to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

William and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge were met with protestors on their arrival to Kingston, Jamaica, who denounced the royal visit and called for reparations for slavery and for the Queen to be removed as the country’s Head of State.

Jamaican human rights activist Opal Adisa said: “Kate and William are beneficiaries, so they are, in fact, complicit because they are positioned to benefit specifically from our ancestors, and we’re not benefitting from our ancestors.”

However, the Cambridges received a much warmer welcome when they visited Trench Town, the home of the late reggae singer Bob Marley. Crowds chanted “We love you, we love you”, as the couple walked through the district.
